Nerlens Noel Has a Torn ACL and Will Miss the Rest of the College Basketball Season

Nerlens Noel Has a Torn ACL and Will Miss the Rest of the College Basketball SeasonKim Klement/USA TODAY Sports

Last night, Nerlens Noel suffered what appeared to be a very bad knee injury during the Kentucky/Florida game. And, after getting an MRI on his left knee today, the worst fears of the Kentucky basketball program were confirmed. Noel has a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2012-13 college basketball season. He's likely played his final game for the Wildcats, too, as we can't imagine a scenario in which he'd risk injury again to play another year in college. Such sad news. We wish him a super speedy recovery.
